Drums first
Guitars second

I manage to play both most weeks, but tend to have a focus on one or the other, and then tend to revert to the other, just when I was making progress.

My first instrument was/will always be the drums but in the last 10 years, I work almost exclusively playing the guitar. Just got booked for a Bass gig next weekend so I guess I'll just go where the gigs take me :lol:

I have a weak spot for LSGs, but I rarely play them. I have good intentions of teaching myself, but that’s a whole ‘nother story.

Nice LS collection . I got me one of the those old Dickerson Mother Of Toilet Seat Lap steels. His name is Merlin. All original down to the Kluson tuners and the paper wrapped capacitors. Love to play it. I havnt tried it with my EXH B9 Organ pedal yet.

AFAIK, no lap steels have pedals. Only Pedal Steels. I may be wrong though....

Here is my lap steel I made:

I've always been jealous of those players... the pedal steels look about impossible! Like a big church organ.

He might be thinking of seeing a lap steel being played like a pedal steel. The place I bought my Dickerson had a Robert Randolph signature LS for sale too and it had the legs with it so you could sit at it like a pedal steel.
